Puma RS-X Space Agency
In a stunning collaboration between NASA and Puma to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, the past and the future collide with this standout statement sneaker. Anything can happen in deep space and wearing this latest design from Puma you’ll be prepared for whatever the day throws your way. Dubbed the “Space Explorer” this Futuro design of the RS-X 80’s inspired trainer is undoubtedly striking, and we think, a future icon in the making.
Using iridescent and metallic accents with color blocking design techniques, this red, white, and blue shoe pays homage to the national space station. Even if it didn’t have the NASA logo emblazoned on the side, the chances are that you would still get the design analogy. The colorway is reminiscent of the early space suits from the Mercury and Gemini programs. Chances are just by wearing this trainer you’ll feel like a real-life intrepid space explorer.
Overall it’s a chunky and bulky looking Unisex sneaker featuring translucent rubber alongside silver moon-textured overlays. With a full, traditional lace closure system, it delivers a secure and personalized fit and benefits from being fitted with Puma’s comfortable midsole cushioning technology for a smooth and stable ride. The rubber outsole provides plenty of traction and grip, so it’s perfect to wear on varied surfaces. There’s an embossed heel piece with a pull tab as well as a thick padded tongue and collar, all of which add to the design and comfortable feel of this retro trainer. The mesh upper is breathable, and overall, the RS-X Space Agency is nicely cushioned. Whether you always dreamt of being an astronaut or not, there’s no denying that this is one highly covetable sneaker and perfect to add to your growing collection.
